March 3rd. This new, more informal, discussion format worked great last time. Come with questions, comments, concerns, or celebrations to share. Possible points of discussion: facilities, school/program calendar for 2018, new clinical director positions, results from recent parent surveys….  Please RSVP to ptingley [at] viaschool [dot] org to give us a sense of how big a room we need.
